Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 15, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta THE LETHBRIOGE HERALD 15 Cougar caged Winston Churchill Bulldogs, the most rapidly- improving team in the Southern Alberta High School Football League the past two seasons, showed they are going to be tough this time around Friday night by walloping Catholic Central Cougars 35-0 in the season opener. Scenes like the one to the left were frequent Friday as the Bulldogs were all over the Cougars. (i claim of foul in doing so By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Editor "What does a girl have to do to win around here." said one interested onlooker Friday, afternoon at Whoop-Up Downs. The question arose after Betty Dunham had finally broken into the winner's circle on a recognized track. No sooner had she crossed the finish line that the Inquiry sign flashed on the tote board. For the past three years Barbara Suitor has been deal- ing the male jockey ego an oc- casional blow. Friday, it was Dunham's turn as she won the featured seventh race atop (iypsy .Jo Mae. Dumham's celebrations were held up until judges had a chance to see the films ol the race. The judges were quite satisfied Dunham had broken no rules and the results of the race, for the I'erlich Bros. Auction Market trophy blanket and purse, were official. The fact that Gypsy .Jo Mae went out al 25-1 also may have had something to do with the male riders' being just a little upset. Dunham's mount, owned and trained by Jim Findlay. paid a handsome for the win. .Jet Courier, ridden by Alvin McCauley. was second while Monty B was third ridden by Vern Watson. It was McCauley and (iraluim Niblett. on fourth' Cay Stitch, that laid the claim of foul. (Jury Marks shared a por- tion of the Friday spotlight with a three-victory afternoon before a chilly gathering of better than 1.100." He started the afternoon with a win aboard Gypsys Freedom in the first, then won I he sixth on Fleeting Bar and closed with a win in the eighth on Marv's Fancv. (Jypsys Freedom, combined with Brian T shared honors in a daily double. In the first quinella Just Affair and Cino's Annie paid while in (lie eighth race Mary's Fancy and Rod Weeder com- bined for a payoff.

Some 800 fans, who withstood the 39-degree temperature at Henderson Stadium, were somewhat suprised with the outcome while others just had their predictions come true. Bulldogs' coach. Pete Neuleld. was perhaps the most surprised with the final outcome but didn't mind it a bit. "I felt we had a good chance to beat the Cougars, but not by five touchdowns." he com- mented. "I thought the game would be a little closer, but we managed to get a few breaks in the early stages which probably proved to be the big he added. Breaks or no breaks, the western division opener was more-or-less a one-sided af- fair in favor of the Bulldogs, who could possibly be a big threat to the defending divi- sion and conference champion Lethbridge Collegiate In- stitute Rams this season. The Rams, who'll carry many of last year's regulars for another term, will open their 73 schedule when they host Medicine Hat High School Mohawks tonight. Game time is slated to go at eight o'clock at Henderson. Meanwhile in last night's tilt, the Bulldogs, who are an experienced club ladened with veterans, were just too much for the Cougars' rookie lineup. The Bulldogs' experienced defensive unit beaming with confidence were obviously over-powering while their offensive unit propelled by lour veteran backfielders and one rookie were no different. The Bulldogs" defensive unit was just outstanding as they gave up only 89 yards on the ground'and 13 in the air to the Cougars' offensive squad. They also picked-off two si ray passes tossed by Cougar quarterback. Alan Boras, and then lopped it all off by scor- ing a pair of touchdowns. Bulldogs' right end, Terry Hamilton and left tackle. Hank Heerzc managed a ma- jor score each after recover- ing a block punt in the Cougars' end zone during the first half. On the other hand, the Bulldogs' offensive unit started out slowlv in the first half of play but rambled on to amass 363 total yards on the ground and 11 in the air.

The quarterback for San Diego Chargers, who passed for almost 40.000 yards in his 16 years with Baltimore Colts, begins his career anew Sun- day. The Chargers have been in- stalled as two-touchdown un- derdogs at Washington. But coach Harland Svare. who suf- fered through a 4-9-1 season last year that dumped the team into the American Conference West cellar, isn't thinking in those terms. "We feel a lot more solid now. We feel we're a contender this he says. "There's not one position that we're not better at than last year." The Redskins can do just about everything. They care- ened through the 1972 cam- paign with an 11-3 record and made it to the Super Bowl before losing to Miami Dolphins. And they proved they're still the team to beat by winning five of six pre- season games. They've got Billy Kilmer at quarterback with a healthy Sonny .lurgensen in reserve. And they've go! NFC rushing champion Larry Brown and Charley Harraway at running back, with a rejuvenated Diuine Thomas and Bob Brunei in reserye. '49ERS VISIT MIAMI Sunday's other season open- ers are San Francisco '49ers at Miami. Oakland Raiders at Minnesota Vikings. Dallas Cowboys at Chicago Bears. Detroit Lions at Pittsburgh Steelers. Los Angeles Rams at Kansas City Chiefs. Houston Oilers at New York Giants. Baltimore at Cleveland Browns, Cincinnati Bengals at Denver Broncos. Atlanta Falcons at New Orleans Saints. St. Louis Cardinals at Philadelphia Eagles and Buf- falo Bills at New England Patriots. New York Jets and Green Bay Packers play Monday night's game in Milwaukee. Miami takes a string of 17 straight one shy of the NFL the game against the '49ers, threetime National Conference West champs. But the Dolphins also take some injuries into the game. Wide receivers Paul Warfield and Howard Twilley are doubtful, so they'll go with Marlin Briscoe and rookie Bo Rather. The '49ers are also hurting with Vic Washington, who pre- viously played with Ottawa Rough Riders and British Co- lumbia Lions in the Canadian Football League, apparently out with a bad knee, so Doug Cunningham will probably be next to Larry Schreiber at running back.

CALL BOB PRESTON at the El Rancho Motor Hotel for Night halfback Bob Myers was the workhorse for the Bulldogs as he registered 142 yards in 14 carries and scored a beautiful 61-yard touchdown in the first quarter. Kookie halfback Jerry Areshenko made an im- pressive debut as he com- plemented Myer's perfor- mance with !13 yards gained in 10 attempts. He also round- ed out the Bulldogs' scoring by galloping to pay-dirt from 10 and 43 yards out. Mike Boychuk and Len Jar- vie also aided the Bulldogs' at- tack as they chewed up 44 and 40 yards respectively. It also seems coach Neufeld has finally landed a place- kicker who doesn't miss the target when given the chance. Ken IJuee. a rookie place- kicker had everything going for him last night as he booted live consecutive converts which could possibly be a new- league record. If the Bulldogs can continue to score touchdowns so Duce has a chance for more com- pleted convert attempts, then it would be sale to say the Bulldogs have a good chance to win their first title ever. KXTRA was ob- viously the worst game the Cougars have played in years, due mainly to the number of rookies in their lineup Guy Pomahac was brilliant in a losing cause as he carried the Cougars on his shoulders throughout the game SPORT FANS By GARY KIRK KIRK'S TIRE SALES LTD. Which were the greatest pro football teams of ali-time? Here's the opinion ol one national sports news service They pick the 1962 Green Bay Packers (with Bart Starr. Pal Hornung and Jim Taylor) The 1940 Chicago Bears (who won the cham- pionship game The 1958 Baltimore Colts (with Johnny Unitas and Lenny Moore) And the 1950 Cleveland Browns (with Otto Graham and Marion Motley) It's a little known fact that when football started in the last century, the football itself was round, like a soccer or basketball It was qradually changed to make it easier to pass when passing became legal in this century The final change came in 1932 when the ball was streamlined to its present shape. One of the most amazing pro football players of all time was a man you don't hear much of today, yet he once set a record that has never been approached by anyone else The National Football League had a halfback in the 1934 season named Beattie Feathers who carried the bail many times that year and averag- ed almost 10 yards every time he ran with the ball from scrimmage No other runner in the long history of the NFL has ever come close to averaging that many yards per carry.
